Someone's Going To Prison On DAYS As Soap Is Casting Tough Inmate Named Sheila!

Another Salem resident is going to the slammer.  Who will end up behind bars?  That is the tease that is circulating on Wednesday after Soap Opera Digest revealed some casting news from NBC’s Days of our Lives.

The series is seeking an actress of any ethnicity between the ages of 30-55 to play a tough inmate named Sheila.  The role will tape in early June.

Given the criminals that inhabit the town, or good people driven to do bad things for good reasons … yeah, we are speaking about you, Hope Williams Brady Jennings (Kristian Alfonso)!

Hope shot and killed Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo).  So it would seem that she is the most obvious choice for some jail time, or is another female?  DAYS tapes far in advance so we won’t see this story till closer to fall, so much could play out by then.

Who would you suggest should play the part of Sheila, the tough inmate?  Anyone from daytime, primetime or web series that fits the bill?  Share your suggestion in the comment section below and then let us know, which character do you think is headed for some prison time on DAYS?

I thought they were changing their taping schedule to just 2-3 weeks out, am I wrong?

No, Jake—you’re right. I was frustrated with the amount of time we would get teased about something that was going to happen only to read the tagline at the bottom that the storyline wouldn’t start being seen on our screens for several months. I read the same thing you did so I was glad to see things would speed up but from what I can tell with this article, it doesn’t look like they’ve gotten around to doing it yet.

They shut down for about a month. But because they were out nearly six months, they’re still out about five months. And with no shows airing for two weeks during the Summer Olympics, they could be back to 5 1/2 months out by the end of the year.

Really! Where did you get this information from?

I suggest another BAD-ASS SHEILA….played by Kimberling Brown on Y/R & BB.

Make me number Six.

When I saw “Sheila”, I only thought of one person.

The one and only Sheila! And of course she was who I thought of when I saw that name.

Kimberlin Brown ex Sheila Carter Y&R, would be terrific in the role.

For the tough inmate Sleila I would like to see one of two people play that role.
Mariska Hargitay or Kelli Giddish.

I am going to say I think it will be Kate Roberts.

We wish it was Kate Roberts, but they wouldn’t give her all that airtime and attention. It will be for Hope (cause God forbid she ever on the back burner!!!) or Jennifer. Poor Kate has to always be on the park bench or the town square.

(YAWN) This show has gotten extremely and I mean EXTREMELY boring – Aiden coming back (although I like the actor well enough) was so idiotic and so done to death, how many “evil twins” can there be in this town with 3 sets? Joey being on the run with this stupid girl is ridiculous – and this flu bug that has hit the town is not that compelling a storyline. Brother, the writers really need to get on the stick – most of the actors are just fine, it’s really not the actor’s fault, it’s the writing that isn’t plausible.

the only character i wld ve cared to see in prison is eric, but the poor writing team wrote him off
i jumped over to b n b now at 1: 30…. much more coherent with steady characters i recognize unlike every 6 months when days gets a dilusional new headwriter

How about Robin Mattson again?

Jade Harlow (I know… she’s only 33!)

Kimberlin Brown (54/55)

The original Sheila herself!

It could also be a prison inmate who is being released from prison, looking for some revenge. We already met that creepy prison guard who said he knew Gabi while she was in jail. As I recall, he claimed to have protected her while she was in the slammer. “Sheila” could be someone Gabi had a problem with who’s now getting out. The show did something similar with ex-con, Nick Fallon, when his rapist, Jensen, was released.

Ciara is going to jail! For crimes committed against acting.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

Through all of the emotional drama, Banus sustained a level of performance that is no easy feat. That is why Michael Fairman TV names Camila’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

Let us know if you agree with our pick, and what you thought of Camila’s performances, and what you think Gabi might do next, via the comment section below.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
